Craft round-up: Viking Love

23 03 2012

Apparently vikings are the new cool, well that’s great for me because it means I am spoilt for choice when buying a gift for my partner (who suffers from delusions of becoming a Viking King). So here is my Etsy Treasury of viking related stuff, there is something for everyone, even the dog!

Colour & texture

18 06 2010

I hate spiders, can’t even look at a photo of one. I even embarrassed myself at the movies once by screaming at the giant spiders on Harry Potter – the 6 year old behind me was not impressed.

Its seems a bit strange to me then, that I like snakes. I find them intriguing and oddly beautiful. So when my partner show me these photos (thinking to scare me) all I could say is “Wow! The colours, the textures…” Apologies as I don’t know where he got them from, if you know I will add the link.
